Chicken Soup for the Dog
August 4, 2009 in: Writing
I will have a story appearing in the newest Chicken Soup for the Soul book. The theme of the book is “What I Learned From the Dog.”
The article I submitted is called “Being a True Buddy,” about our farm dog. Buddy was my Mom’s dog and when she passed away, Buddy missed her terribly. But then, he helped me to cope with my grief. In giving himself away, he taught us what it means to be a true buddy. I have finally gotten to the point where I can read the story without tearing up.
The book releases on Sept. 22 and you can pre-order on Amazon, should you so choose.
It has been a fun experience to be part of this. The Chicken Soup organization has been wonderful to work with. It’s quite exciting to think of being published in a book.
I hope you get a chance to pick up the book and that you enjoy it. You might have to a dog lover to really enjoy it, although I’m sure cat people can appreciate it.
One of my upcoming projects is to write devotions for dog lovers. I’ve had some of deepest spiritual insights while walking the dog.
